Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) got fired up and went off on the Supreme Court’s choice to overturn Roe v. Wade, screaming for the adding of additional justices while taking part in an extremely controversial new interview.
Warren issued her statements as part of an interview this past Sunday on “This Week” on ABC News.
“They just took the last of it and set a torch to it,” stated Warren to Martha Raddatz, one of the co-anchor. “I believe we need to get some confidence back in our court and that means we need more justices on the United States Supreme Court … We’ve done it before, we need to do it again.”
The Supreme Court has "burned whatever legitimacy they may still have had" with their ruling overturning Roe v. Wade, Sen. Elizabeth Warren tells @MarthaRaddatz.

Warren made the argument that abortion would end up being an extremely critical issue for the rapidly approaching midterm elections in November, crying out for more senators who would join the side of the Democrats.
“We [need to] get two more senators on the Democratic side, two senators who are willing to protect access to abortion and get rid of the filibuster so that we can pass it,” stated Warren. “John Fetterman, I’m looking at you in Pennsylvania. Mandela Barnes, I’m looking at you in Wisconsin. We bring them in, then we’ve got the votes, and we can protect every woman no matter where she lives.”
The senator out of Massachusetts also labeled the choice to overturn Roe v. Wade as “extremist.”
“I do know this: that the Republicans have been very overt about trying to get people through the court who didn’t have a published record on Roe but who they knew, wink, wink, nod, nod, were going to be extremist on the issue of Roe v. Wade and that is exactly what we have ended up with,” exclaimed Warren.
The vote concerning Dobbs v.s. Jackson Women’s Health Organization which ended in a 6-3 split, went along the same lines as the leaked draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito back in May. The leak led to extreme protests and outlandish acts of violence by groups of pro-abortion activists, such as the alleged attempted murder charge placed on one man who showed up next to the personal residence of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
This past Friday night, one Republican stated via Twitter that the members of the Arizona state Senate were “held hostage” inside the Senate building due to protesters in the wake of the ruling from SCOTUS.
“We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security. We smell teargas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear. I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately,” tweeted state Sen. Kelly Townsend (R-AZ).
